Welcome
 

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Dripping Springs web site.  We invite you to take a look around our site and to find out more about our club and about Rotary International.  If, after considering what we offer you and the community, you would like to look into membership, please consider contacting us here.  If you are interested in speaking for the club, please contact us here.

The Rotary Club is a service organization focusing on local and international needs.  Locally, we have sponsored projects such as a multi-year character building program at a local elementary school, construction of concession and restroom facilities at the local sports park, construction of therapeutic gardens at a local assisted living facility, construction of picnic area improvements for the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce, supporting the local food bank, and helping a local center for disadvantaged youths with repairs and improvements.  We also put on an annual tribute to veterans on Veteran's Day.  To pay for all of this we raise funds through dues, and various fund raisers.

 We meet at Flores Mexican Restaurant two miles or so east of Dripping Springs on 290, Mondays at noon.  We conduct club business, have some social time for the members and have a variety of speakers about local and broader issues of interest. We occasionally have a social event, including our annual Officer Induction Dinner and a Christmas Party.  All of our activities are open; we have no secrets and we are proud of who we are.  We enjoy our Rotary membership and seek to support our community and the greater good through service.  After all, the motto of Rotary is "service above self," and we seek to embody that.

If these types of activities appeal to you, then we invite you to consider applying for membership in The Dripping Springs Rotary Club.  As Hays County enters into an exciting time of unparalleled growth the opportunities and need for our services are expanding.  We hope to continue growing our club to meet the challenge.

Rotaract Outstanding Project Award recognizes innovative programs
Though they were a long way from home, members of the Rotaract Club of Bugolobi, Uganda, felt confident they could tackle problems in rural Kanabulemu during their annual 1000 Smiles project. Their original plan focused on curtailing the spread of HIV/AIDS. It's in the Rakai District, where the first case of AIDS in Uganda was uncovered in 1982 and about 12 percent of the population has been infected with HIV in recent years. But the Rotaractors discovered that problems in the village extended far beyond the disease. "The community lacked water, the school was in a sorry state, and the...
Pope welcomes Rotary to Jubilee audience
Thousands of Rotary members, motivated by a special invitation from Pope Francis, gathered at the Vatican in Rome on Saturday to celebrate a message of compassion, inclusiveness, and service to humanity. At midmorning, the group -- numbering some 9,000 members from 80 countries -- made its way through the congested streets of Rome, past the tight security surrounding St. Peter's Square, and settled into the area reserved for Rotary in front of St. Peter's Basilica for the Jubilee audience. Francis, a 79-year-old Argentine, urged the crowd of more than 100,000, which included members of the...
What millennials love about Rotary
From the May 2016 issue of The Rotarian If there is one absolute truth about millennials, it is this: Anyone who says there is an absolute truth about millennials risks being subjected to their collective eye roll. Millennials are individuals, and fiercely so. According to the Pew Research Center, most of them don’t even like being called “millennials,” let alone hearing generalizations about their shared attitudes and behaviors. Case in point: Christa Papavasiliou, 31, recoils at the notion that older folks see her generation as a bunch of selfie-snapping smartphone addicts. “I’m the...
The Rotarian Conversation with The Edge and Garvin Evans
Editor's note: After the May 2016 issue of The Rotarian went to press, we were saddened to learn of the death of Garvin Evans, who along with his son, U2 guitarist The Edge, appeared on the cover of that issue. Evans was a longtime member of the Rotary Club of Dublin North. We are grateful that we were able to share his remarkable story with our readers. *** The boys of U2 are home. It’s Friday, 27 November, two weeks after the terrorist attacks in Paris. Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. had been in Paris that terrible evening, rehearsing at the venue where they were...
